Bullfinch (Pyrrhula pyrrhula).............................................................................

I saw two Bullfinches in my garden yesterday... the male has been around for a couple of weeks...
....he has been joined by a female.

The male has rose-pink cheeks and underparts the female is drab grey below.

They were both back this morning and I managed a video clip.
The female is feeding first (with a Goldfinch) then the more colourful male.

How good is that??? Next you'll have them nesting in your garden and a veritable population explosion. I bet you won't mind that.

Hi Andrew You are so fortunate to have these beautiful birds visiting your feeders and great for us that you can shot the video of them.

It's so exciting when you can get photos of the pair! Great photos. I really enjoyed the video, it was like watching them through the window in my own backyard.
